Hi, I'm Ildiko

Welcome to the Weekend Enthusiast! A collection of travel, lifestyle, restaurant reviews and home of the Edinburgh Enthusiast. 

What to do this weekend: 23-24 July


Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival

It's the closing weekend of the jazz fest, so your last chance to enjoy great tunes by Davina&the Vagabonds, Seonaid Aitken with the Tokyo Django Collective, the Michal Milczgarek Trio and others. We already enjoyed the fest during the week and can confirm that the view from the City Art Centre 5th floor venue is pretty good!


Leith Market 1st Birthday

Can't believe it has already been a year since the Leith Market appeared in the Edinburgh market scene - luckily it has proved popular and they will throw a special birthday market to celebrate the occasion. Meet your favourite vendors and with every purchase get a chance to win a hamper full of goodies.

The Pitt

If you're already in Leith, why not pop in to the Pitt? The list of this week's vendors include Barnacles&Bones, Umami Spice Girl, Sweet by Twelve Triangles and others. Caffeine supply by the Bearded Barista.


Karen Mabon Sleepwear Salon Show

If you have not yet heard of the talented Scottish designer, it's time to google her name and admire her cute prints online. In case you want to see her latest pyjama designs live, this Sunday the Caley's Pompadour restaurant will host Karen's show as part of the Edinburgh International Fashion Festival. There will be goodie bags designed by Jaco&co and perhaps some bubbly! Check out the fashion fest full program here.
